    The Sanctuary is entered from the east and is backed by three large towers. To gain access you must go through a pavilion. At each entrance are guardians along side the steps. This structure along with the libraries are the most detailed carvings I've scene in Angkor. The structures are rather close together so getting a full picture at once is difficult.

    Most of the area within the third enclosure is occupied by a moat. There is a causeway to the second enclosure but I recommend taking time to walk along a path that is between the wall of the third enclosure and the moat. The trail in narrow but far enough away to get a full picture of the temple and wonderful reflections in the moat.

    This causeway is 67 meters long and connects the Gopura with the Third Enclosure. On either side of the causeway is remnants of corridors leading from the enclosure. This causeway has been nicely restored and makes for a beautiful setting.
